I'm planning on buying the A-T ATH-AD700s. Now I've been told you can improve the lack of bass in these cans by adding and external AMP (FiiO E5 was recommended). Thing is, I also need a USB sound card as the on-board audio on my laptop is... sub standard.
My question is, with my limited budget of $130 and under, should I get the amp with the headphones? Or the sound card? Or should I buy the Asus U3 and get both in one? I've have mixed feelings about the U3 as I've heard reviews saying it's both amazing, and terrible...
Can anyone help
Sound Card: Creative Soundblaster X-Fi
AMP: FiiO E5
